Gary Hovey - “Silverwareback Sentinel”
Gary Hovey started creating sculptures of animals and plants using utensils such as forks, spoons and knives in 2004. He cuts, molds and welds stainless steel flatware to look like feathers, fur, leaves and petals. The Ohio-based artist is inspired by nature, metalwork and humor. His amazing “Silverwareback Sentinel” sculpture primarily used numerous forks to create a family of three gorillas.
